Meredith Sharp – “Worship is a Battle” – The Jesus Pursuit – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); Meredith Sharp’s passion is to be a worship leader. From Wilson, North Carolina, she is a project manager for a healthcare IT company, a vocalist lead out on the worship team at Elevation Church Raleigh, and eGroup leader there, among other things.

What does ‘Covet’ Mean? – The Outlaw Bible Student – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); The Ten Commandments are ten principles given by God to Moses on Mt. Sinai after the enslaved Israelites were delivered out of Egypt. These ten major rules were written upon two tablets of stone and called the Decalogue,1 but best known as the Ten Commandments. These commandments are listed in the Bible in two forms, which exhibit some variations. They can be found at Exodus 20:2–17 and Deuteronomy 5:6–18.2 Although some people believe that…

Grace Beautifies the Broken Road – Christian Article

By Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts I’m often asked what it means to be a Christian. I don’t find the answer to be as easy as saying, “A follower of Christ.” For me it’s a bit more complicated. Those kinds of pat answers tend to pass right over the nuance of things. And I hate that. I like the details. I like breaking things down and getting at the heart of things. When I say I’m a follower of Christ,…

Church Can Be A Scary Place For Those With Mental Health Issues Like Anxiety, PTSD or Depression… – Healthy Mind Ministry – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); For someone living with the many different forms of anxiety or depression, attending church can be next to impossible. We must start accepting the fact that as diverse as the human race is physically, it is also diverse mentally. There are many people who cannot attend a social function of any sorts, no matter if it is in the name of worshiping God, or not. Crowds, noises, and other stimulation become too much for…

Double Trouble – Liz Petruzzi, lizpetruzzi.com – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 It wasn’t intentional. It was an accommodation. A kindness. A compromise. I didn’t want to be that Christian. The one who makes sure everyone knows they don’t drink or let their kids watch certain movies. The one people roll eyes over as they walk away. I wanted my non-Christian…

Sermon #101: Yes, You Can! – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); I remember when I was still a teenager. I kept grudges; real grudges, I mean. I did not know how to forgive; neither did I have the willingness to do so. If somebody did me wrong they were supposed to pay for it! I was a stranger to God back then – I had never experienced the transforming power of the Holy Spirit in my life. Any talk about God actually had a jarring…

What Kind of Christian are You? – The Outlaw Bible Student – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); This article is neither a deep Bible study nor one that unveils a mysterious biblical event. It is just a reflection of my own inner thoughts about how I look at religion and Christianity and how I observe and catalog Christians in particular. First, let’s have a short overview of religious beliefs and the many divisions. Some people believe in a god, and some don’t. Some really aren’t sure of what they believe, but…

When Walls Crumble and Fall – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); September 20,1989 “If your baby lives he will be severely disabled. He won’t walk or talk or acknowledge you.” The doctor left and I sat without expression. When the words finally sank in, I cried without comfort. Prayed and asked why. It was the destruction of a dream. The dream of the baby and life I planned. When I heard these words, I sat down and wept and mourned for days; and I was…

Summer Salad and Jesus – The Jesus Pursuit – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); This evening a group of women from church had a gathering at a friend’s house for an event called “Summer Salad Spectacular”. Well, it was delicious. The kitchen counter was adorned with salads of all kinds, some of which I’m not even sure what they were…and we enjoyed some tea and lemonade. A perfectly ladylike meal. We all split into little groups of conversation in the house and backyard, and it was lovely. The…

Take The Time To Rest… – Healthy Mind Ministry – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); We live in a busy world that makes you feel irresponsible if you take a day off to rest. Our work week has consumed Sundays to make the non-stop selling of goods more important than what is actually “good” for us. Remember when we were younger and we were exploding with energy, that as we have grown older we often reflect on fondly, wondering where that energy went. It is no coincidence that as…

I’m a Skunk – Liz Petruzzi, lizpetruzzi.com – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man. Mark 7:15 Without a doubt my greatest challenge and sin are the words I say. Words said in anger. Words said to make a pointed point. Words said to punish. Words said carelessly without thought. Wounding words I can’t retrieve. Things I say to impress…

“No Longer Slaves” – The Jesus Pursuit – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); My heart is so overwhelmed. Like a kid standing outside Cinderella’s castle at DisneyWorld…except 1,000 times that. So much can be said about our Heavenly Father, and yet no words could suffice. The One Who sent His very own – only – begotten Son, Jesus Christ. I’ve been spending a lot of time particularly in the last couple of days listening to messages about prayer, including a couple by Francis Chan, author of Crazy…

“Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness?” – The Outlaw Bible Student – Christian Article

This article is short, but truly a study on the fringe of Christianity, something I am known to present. But it is just a study and examination of what a few others suppose. It is not suggested as doctrine or dogma — it is just something to make you think “outside of the box” and presented to stimulate your brain. Whether you believe any of it or not has little bearing upon your relationship with our Creator, but it will…

Abide – Liz Petruzzi, lizpetruzzi.com – Christian Article

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. John 15:15 Apart from the vine, I can do nothing. Remain. Be still. Listen and follow. I cannot grow or bear fruit disconnected.

Constant prayer. Blessed are those who remain steadfast. Steadfast in Christ. Suffering…

We can say that we are a Christian, but what does that mean? Here…
